    The Nevco Story: How to Make a 70-Year-Old Company Young & Vibrant Again

    Gayla Moore CPIM, CIRM

    How do you transform a 70-year-old manufacturing company? Come hear the story of Nevco and its 13 year journey from near obsolescence to industry leader:

    • From zero growth to tripled revenue
    • From single product manufacturer to an array of display and scoring solutions


    In March 2004, Gayla Moore purchased Nevco, a scoreboard manufacturer struggling with breakeven EBITDA and lackluster sales. After six month, the company had decreased its product lead time from 8 weeks to 4 weeks simultaneously reducing its inventory and direct labor costs.

    Using operational excellence as a platform for innovation and growth, the subsequent 13 years posted annual double-digit revenue growth while maintaining a healthy EBITDA as a percent of sales. Nevco became the largest privately held scoreboard manufacturer in the world. This strong financial performance and brand recognition attracted many buyers. In June 2017, Nevco partnered with a large private equity firm to assist in the next stage of growth and transformation.

    Prior to purchasing Nevco, Gayla Moore spent many years in manufacturing and consulting. She holds a BS in Computer Management from Eastern Illinois University, an MBA from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville and two APICS certifications – CPIM and CIRM.
